Out of 3 daughters Mimi is our middle child, older sister Iza by 3 minutes and a younger sister Magi by 3 years. Mimi was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on August 12, 2009. After 2 years, 2 months and 26 days on November 6th, 2011 she took her last chemo pill and is considered OFF Treatment! This is our story of our journey through childhood cancer.

Clinic Day 3-1-11

Procedure Day for intrathecal chemotherapy (methotrexate). Everything went as scheduled, Mimi even got a foot massage right before we went down. She woke up shortly after the procedure, asked for a munchkin and off home we went. It is weird how routine these things have become, I still get knots in my stomach before she goes under, but it doesn't scare her she knows what the plan is and just goes with it.

Her counts were great ANC was 2200.

Oh and one more BIG thing. Mimi asked when will she be done taking chemo and the official date right now is November 6th, 2011. Seems surreal.


  1. On Uncle Toto's birthday?! We are going to have ourselves one hell of a party!!!!


  2. I love it, an End Date! Hopefully it won't be TOO long past that when you can start to relax a little :)

  3. You have amazed me with your extreme focus, amazing incite, positive attitude and strength! Wishing you a speedy spring/summer/fall...'til Nov. 6th!
